Robert + Alison = True

This has been “spinning” on my iPhone/iPad/MacBook Pro this week.

“Spinning” might not be the right word anymore. It’s been a long time since there were any moving parts required to listen to good (or bad for that matter) music.

The only parts that can spin on my devices sit in my MacBook Pro. The fans. And with the new MacBook Pro, not even they are spinning (not required due to the design and the M1 Max chip).

1200 m Up and 2000 m Down

Exhausted after a day hike in the World Heritage on Yakushima – climbed a total of 1200 m and descended a total of 2000 m while covering a distance of 22 km.

Passed so many beautiful cedar trees 1000+ years old. Just wished I could have a talk with them – what would they say, what wisdom would they share?

The main attraction was Jomon Sugi. A tree of 5 m in diameter and beloved to be at least 2000 years old. Beautiful.

A very hard but rewarding hike.
